    The rush of oxygen into the room triggered a fireball which ignited the gas supply.

    A £6m project to replace street lights in North Lincolnshire with more energy efficient ones is due to get under way next week.

    Councillor Richard Hannigan with one of the new energy efficient street lights.

    The council say the new lights will use up to 75% less energy and save them around £500,000 once the work's done.

    It currently costs North Linclonshire Council £1m a year to light our streets.

    It'll take three years to replace all 21,000 light bulbs.

    BBC Radio Humberside

    A petition's been launched by a local woman to save a dog which a court ordered should be put down after leaving a toddler needing plastic surgery.

    Although the dog was on a lead when the boy approached and tried to cuddle him, Beverley Magistrates Court (pictured) found that the dog was "dangerously out of control" and ordered the dog's owner to pay £7,000 in damages.

    Magistrates said they were not satisfied that the dog wasn't a danger to the public.

    But Sheena Louise from South Killingholme wants to save Jed and instead of him being put down wants him to wear a muzzle in public.

    She's started a petition which has been signed over 60,000 times.

    BBC Local Live

    Have you ever looked at a road sign and thought of art?

    No! Well you'll soon be able to see a new exhibition which takes our road signs and gives them a twist:

    Here's Sir Terrance Conran’s rather gory sign warning cyclists of the dangers of sharing the roads with trucks

    A triangular warning sign showing a figure on the floor with a bike and tire marks.

    Our street signs were originally designed over 50 years ago by Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinnear and roughly circles give us instructions, triangles warn and rectangles inform.

    A new exhibition, 'Made North' at Humber Street Gallery in Hull, which is curated by Patrick Murphy, is taking those classic signs and asking leading designers and artists to reinterpret them.

    Here's a cheeky directions sign by the actor Mark Bonner
